place to be:

Africam forum called The Boma

Tell us a true story about Spring.

We wish to celebrate Spring in the northern hemisphere after a long and very cold winter. Our apologies to those in the southern hemisphere going into winter. In spite of what season is where, we can all be happy and have fun together.

I am deleting my old post to put in fresh pictures of the blue tits nesting in my garden. The sun is shining today so it all looks more spring-like Smiling

This little African Canticle seems to sing of spring to me:

 

All you big things, bless the Lord

Mount Kilimanjaro and Lake Victoria

The Rift Valley and the Serengeti Plain

Fat baobabs and shady mango trees

All eucalyptus and tamarind trees

Bless the Lord

 

All you tiny things, bless the Lord

Busy black ants and hopping fleas

Wriggling tadpoles and mosquito larvae

Flying locusts and water drops

Pollen dust and tsetse flies

Millet seeds and dried dagaa

Bless the Lord

Praise and extol him for ever and ever.

Blossoms and blue skies, what a day you had Fani! Great to see your part of the world.

Congrats on the Barn swallow, I still have to wait about two weeks, although the reports here in my area is that one was seen today.
